‘Stroller Brigade’ lobbies against toxins
When Randi Abrams-Caras went to her child’s day care center, she asked about her son’s nap mat. Within a short time, she had it checked only to learn “it tested very high for lead and other toxic flame retardants.”
She has been reading about the ingredients in baby shampoo, jewelry, toys and just about everything else ever since, continually learning how many toxic chemicals there are in some common items. She combined this with her knowledge that these chemicals reach a fetus through its mother, infants through breast milk and children through things they touch and eat.
